Welcome! As a therapist I am passionate about providing gender-affirming care to individual adults who are transgender, non-binary, gender-expansive, or gender-questioning. I also support individuals with experiences of queer sexualities and have specialized training in grief and loss. My priority is to create a supportive and safe space to help you discover the path toward living your authentic life in a safe way. Whether that means exploring gender or sexuality in an affirming space, finding the right resources, developing tools for coping with difficult experiences, or healing from past emotional wounds, I am here to help.

Are you tired of hiding your pain while trying to fulfil your daily responsibilities? Is anxiety or depression keeping you from living the life that you once envisioned? Are you going through a difficult life transitions or experiencing conflict in your relationships? If you answered “Yes” to any of these questions, you are not alone. Life has many turns and detours, and we often feel hopeless, lost, and confused. Because we tend to isolate when feeling helpless or depressed, our lack of support aggravates the way we feel. I believe one of the bravest things you can do is begin to understand your story. I’m here to listen!

Life can be tough and struggling through challenges alone can be even tougher. You may be experiencing high levels of stress, depression or anxiety. You may even be suffering from panic attacks. There is hope, however, and EMDR therapy can help identify unwanted patterns, triggers and behaviors in order to create positive change. We do not have to be defined by our negative experiences or past traumas. We all have the power within us to make positive changes in our lives and I want to help you do just that! I am also a certified Bikram Yoga instructor and truly believe in the importance of the Mind/Body connection.

In today's hustle, however, you're not alone in feeling overwhelmed by everyday stressors, sense of worthlessness & an unnerving anxiety. Perhaps on top of balancing a life of family obligations, career demands, & friendship circles you've also experienced a major life change that has left you rattled & isolated? Self-care and inner peace are possible in today's busy lifestyles. Together, we can pave your path to improved mental wellness.

Previously employed at SpaceX as their in-house psychotherapist, I provide step-by-step guidance on how to stop wasting valuable time and energy on things you cannot control. Through the latest neuroscience research, I extend knowledge and concrete exercises that build healthy and resilient neuropathways. I tailor each session to practice how to be present to each new experience, instead of holding onto the past and focusing too much on the future. I create a comforting space for deep introspection and self awareness for you to reinvent yourself for ultimate success in all areas of life.

While I love working with women in their 20's and 30's, I am also VERY passionate about working with adolescents and their families! This is such a crucial time in our brain's development, and my goal in therapy is to assist my client's and their parents in learning how to manage the complexities of this dynamic period of life. Teenage years are a time of rapid growth and desire for autonomy. This can be very disruptive to the family system without the proper tools to manage the overwhelming emotions that adolescence is infamously known for, and unfortuantely some teens turn to unhelpful coping tools to avoid discomfort and stress.

Right now most of the people I talk with are addressing covid related concerns such as dealing with uncertainty, new directions, relationship stress, anxiety, and self-care. Professionally, I have worked in a university setting (including the medical school) and now have the luxury of providing virtual/on-line sessions. Though I have worked primarily with young adults, I treasure being there for adults of all ages.

Navigating life and relationships can be challenging! Nothing is perfect. Life is messy. Relationships are complex. Outcomes are uncertain. Each one of us is craving authentic love & we are seeking to have others care for us the way we most deeply desire. The couples I work with learn where their relational wounds originated and how to truly show up for one another in the most loving + healing ways. They do this by identifying what does and does not work in their relationship. They work together to create loving experiences where they are finally able to feel seen, heard, and understood by one another.

When you have tried to resolve issues on your own, and things just aren't changing, it is time to seek professional help. Perhaps your or your significant other's past and unresolved issues are what is creating the distress; an inability to trust, to feel joy and happiness, to pursue dreams. It is important to seek help early on so that things do not worsen. Whether you are seeking marriage counseling, individual therapy, or therapy for your teen, I can help you get on track to a healthier more fulfilling life.

I help couples and individuals identify the heart of their relationship struggles. I have developed a giftedness in supporting people through their relationship questions, whether it's in the dating process or contemplating divorce. I support people through the hard questions about their relationships and provide the right questions and feedback to help people determine what is "theirs" (read, change-able), and what is not "theirs", and ways to effectively cope with what they can't change.
